Today Japanese manufacturer Kotobukiya announced that it’s bringing back two of its plastic model kits dedicated to the popular Muv-Luv visual novel franchise.
The first is Naoya Sagiri’s Type-94 Shiranui Imperial Japanese Army Full Option Set. Interestingly, this one isn’t marked as a reprint and it appears that some weapon options have been added compared to the older model, which has been out of print for several years.
It appeared in Muv-Luv Alternative, which is one of the most popular and beloved visual novels of all time.
It’ll release in November 2021 and it’s priced at 6,800 yen plus taxes (approximately $62).,
This one is priced at 3,000 yen (approximately $28) plus taxes and will also ship in November 2021.
Looks like Kotobukiya is keen on bringing back its Muv-Luv plastic model kit range. These follow the Takemikazuchi models announced in April and releasing between September and October.
This is likely due to the recent resurgence of the series, which will culminate in October with the airing of the massively-anticipated Muv-Luv Alternative anime.
If you’re interested in the Muv-Luv franchise in general, during recent events we saw the reveal of the official title of Muv-Luv Resonative (which is the continuation of The Day After) and new gameplay of Project Mikhail.
A few months ago, we heard the much-awaited announcement that Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien (also known as Rumbling Hearts) will finally be released in English.
